If your looking for something different to do this weekend you should definitely check out The Order Of Malta Ambulance Corps competitions in Dundalk.
Every year volunteers from all over Ireland gather together to compete in competitions based on medical scenarios, to show off their skills and win the coveted trophies.
The Order of Malta Ambulance Corps, or OMAC as many would say, is a voluntary ambulance and first aid organisation with over 4,000 volunteers involved in over 80 units across the Island of Ireland.
A major provider of first aid training, ambulance cover at large events, patient transport, community care and nursing services in most of the major cities and towns across the island of Ireland.
With over 165 ambulances, rapid response vehicles, mobile accident and emergency suites, support vehicles, medical bikes and command centres – it is safe to say the OMAC trained first aid responders know what to do in an Emergency.
This year, the North East Region of the Order of Malta Ambulance Corps are welcoming over three hundred volunteers to the main square in Dundalk to compete in the 2016 National First Aid, Ambulance and Nursing Competitions on the 10th of September.
Many units from across Ireland will compete in the competitions taking place around the town. The event is open to the public from 9am and provides a great opportunity to see first-hand the life saving techniques that volunteers employ at events across the country.
If your around Dundalk on Saturday make sure to head to the main square and experience the amazing lifesaving skills these volunteers.
